(To tune of “What’s the Matter with Kids Today,” by Charles Strouse and Lee Adams from Broadway Musical “Bye-Bye Birdie.”)

Facts, candidates don’t bother with facts today
Facts, they’re irrelevant and get in the way
Facts, always inconveniently interpose a truth
The boring, stupid recipe for losing
You’ll never catch one using

Facts, every politician avoids like plague
Facts get you nowhere, offer them something vague
Reality is poison, chasing the votes away
Nobody wants to hear facts today.
